Maple Dijon Chicken Tenderloin

I am always looking for new marinades for chicken.  This one is quick and easy and very tasty.  The first time I made it I marinated some chicken tenderloins then skewered them on BBQ skewers like a satay.  Grill for 10 minutes and enjoy.

Barbequed maple dijon chicken skewers

  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons dijon or, our favourite, tarragon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Combine marinade ingredients.
  2. Add chicken tenderloins, coat well and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  3. Skewer lengthwise, like a satay (think of making an S out of each piece). I put 3 tenderloins per skewer.
  4. Heat grill, oil grill so chicken doesn’t stick. With a short cooking time this really helps.
  5. Once grill is heated, grill chicken skewers for about 10 minutes.

Yield: 4 to 5 servings
